Why Study Cyber Security?
There are few careers that guarantee both lucrative earnings potential and lifelong job security. In the face of the growing threat posed by cyber criminals worldwide, the field of cyber security is a rare exception to the rule. At every level, our lives have been taken over by connected technology. So-called ‘smart’ devices with internet connections are known for simplifying and improving our enjoyment of everyday life. Unfortunately, every connected device worldwide also provides cyber criminals with the opportunity to carry out an attack. For the cybersecurity expert, the challenge lies in remaining one step ahead of sophisticated cybercriminals at all times. Whether it’s safeguarding the finances of a major business or protecting the private data of the public, cyber security specialists are the safeguards that prevent anarchy on a global scale. Cyber security is a complex and challenging field of immense responsibility, though one that promises remarkable career prospects for those who make it.
